- The Manufacturing Process - All MAC knives are created using a unique mixture of tungsten and stainless steel, and they are hardened to a set of very specific temperatures. This manufacturing formula creates a blade that maintains a razor-sharp edge that holds extremely well, but that is also very easy to sharpen when it does become dull.
- Solid Build - The Chef's Knife is fashioned from a solid piece of metal that stretches from the tip of the blade to the end of the tang. It is perfectly balanced, and it weighs exactly 1 pound. This creates a knife that feels substantial and has adequate heft but isn't so heavy as to create undue fatigue. The bolster is increased in the center, as well, to create added balance and sturdiness.
- Thinner Than Average - The Chef's Knife's blade is only approximately 2 millimeters thick which is a fair amount less than the average knife of the same size. This decreases the overall weight and also adds to the balance. The knife has a number of dimples that stretch the length of the blade, as well, that make it even thinner and that prevent food from sticking.
- Thousands of People. - .can't be wrong. The Chef's Knife is the single most popular knife MAC sells for daily use. It is incredibly versatile and can be used for nearly any kitchen task short of hacking bones apart or crushing ice.
